in reply to Portable perl: usb thumbdrive
I have following to advice to you, 100% based on my own practices:
- use LiveCD linuxes: you boot from CD with your USB pen inserted, play w/o installing anything with Perl. When you go, you'll data storied to USB. I use knoppix, but this could be anything else. Some linuxes boot from USB device and are located entirely there.
- Use WinCE with perl on it. Sometimes I use it within 5-min breaks at lunch, or in any unexpected places.
